Is it safe to take one mg of ativan every night to help with sleeping?


Answer by  cindy (1484)

Ativan is commonly used in hospitals as a sleeping medication. One mg is a low dose and safe for most people.

If doctor-prescribed, 1 mg Ativan (lorazepam) is safe to take for sleeping. It should be short-term though. Benzodiazepines can cause physical dependence, resulting in rebound-insomnia when you go off them.

You should discuss the use of Ativan with your physician. Because it is addictive, Ativan use should be monitored. There may also be a more suitable medication for your insomnia.

Well, it is not good to take atvian every night because your body will develop tolerance for the drug. In the long term, can cause some side effects.
